The first shot is full frame, difficult to make a worthwhile crop - no room for the tail. :lol:

The second is a crop from the next shot of this little Sparrow. Both shots were as close as I can get to a target - 16 feet. Thus the problems of using the Hubble for photography. They were shot at ISO 800, 1/400 hand held at 1100mm.

Not to many Warblers this year, but this guy posed quite nicely for me right after the recent Snow Storm

DBB these are really nice.

I especially like the warbler shot. You might consider a slight curves adjustment on the warbler to bring out the shadows just a bit.

Yes, those were the words of the police, after they were told an Al Qaeda terrorist was on the beach with a handheld rocket launcher....:?:
